Description

'Lines' looks at the relationship between Britain's colonial rule in Palestine and Uganda and asks how this history now affects the natives of both countries both at home and in the diaspora.

What connects five prisons over five decades in Uganda, Palestine, and the UK? A homeowner struggling to keep ancient land. A queer woman teaching in Kampala. The son of Idi Amin’s general. Lines looks through the bars of postcolonial life as told through stories in these diverging yet parallel worlds. By following the links and threads between these characters, we explore these questions.
